Blog Interrupted...

That's so how I've been feeling.
Not that I need to tell you that! It's pretty darn obvious. Post on 9/16. Post on 10/31. Oh my! Time truly does go by too, too fast. So, yes, blog interrupted. It's called 'life'. As life gets crazy busy, something just has to give. Sadly, it was my blog for a bit. But I'm back! (Hey, three days in a row is quite a record here!) So now, it's catch up time!

Today I wanted to share a few layouts that I created with the fantastic Hip 2B Square August Kit. (Yes, I said August. Bear with me as I bring us all up to date!) This kit is full of happy & whimsy! Bright colors. Fun patterns. Fabulous embellishments. A bit of American Crafts Amy Tangerine (love it!), super cute Jillibean Soup and a dash of Echo Park and Maya Road.

On this layout I used a photo of a painting of my niece. Her teacher had created this, based off of a photograph of her as a gift to her parents. How cool is that?! It completely captures her essence. Love it so much.

I even included a bit of 'up-cycling' in this you spy the button card from the Jillibean Soup buttons?

This next layout was based on this sketch from Lisa Day...

I adore the burlap 'ribbon' that was included in this kit! It adds fabulous texture to projects. And the Maya Road Canvas Buttons...more fabulous texture.

And one more layout...a silly one. Wish I still had those red sunglasses...

There's those Maya Road Canvas Buttons again...this time cut, misted, strung & stitched!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends! I have lots more to share...lots of projects have been in the works! And with any luck, I'll stay on track with this blogging thing!
